ATLANTA (AP) — Work is resuming on a roughly $1 billion commercial development that's been stalled for years in metro Atlanta.

Cranes began moving again Tuesday at the project known as Buckhead Atlanta. Development director Hunter Richardson tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ( ) that tenants are signing leases and the project is moving ahead.

The development was once called Streets of Buckhead with an aim toward building an upscale environment in the city's party district. The project stalled in 2009, leaving unfinished construction in the heart of bustling Buckhead.

The development has now been scaled back, but it will still include about 370 apartments, 300,000 square feet of shopping space and 100,000 square feet of office space.
